The main steps of the Gongfucha Chinese tea ceremony are as follows: first, warm the teapot and cups with hot water to remove the chill; secondly, measure the appropriate amount of tea leaves into the teapot according to the number of people, and then pour out all the hot water in the teapot; thirdly, pour boiling water into the teapot until it is about three-quarters full, and then cover the lid of the teapot to let the tea leaves “yumai” for about 20-30 seconds.
Fourth, open the lid of the teapot, use a small cup to pour out all the hot water in the teapot, and then pour it into the gong dao bei; Fifth, add boiling water to the teapot again, and then cover the lid of the teapot to let it “yumai” for about 10-15 seconds; Sixth, open the lid of the teapot, use a small cup to pour out all the hot water in the teapot, and then pour it into the gong dao bei; Seventh, add boiling water to the teapot again, and then cover the lid of the teapot. After about 1 minute, open the lid of the teapot and pour the tea into the fair cup.
Eighth, when pouring the tea, it is necessary to control the strength of the tea, so that each cup of tea has a uniform color, and then evenly divide the tea in the teapot into each cup.
Ninth, after everyone has drunk a cup of tea, add boiling water to the teapot again, and repeat the above steps until the tea soup in the teapot is light yellow
